    Compelling poems a lot of mini stories with rough parallels to Satie and a lot of vivid evocations of a world 100 years in the past Because I'm also reading Geoff Brock's translations of Pavese I couldn't help but see parallels in how Steadman approaches his characters in this collection though his people tend toward the urban while Pavese's are mostly rural Still something of that clear eyed but affectionate attention is similar Helps if you have a bit of French to catch the witty titles and epigraphs that are lifted from Satie's absurdist orchestral directions
